New Year's Eve in Ottawa

It's so cold in Ottawa they cancelled New Year's Eve shows on Parliament Hill. Fireworks will go ahead.

There's another way to celebrate and ring in the New Year on the 31st, and it's Scottish style (that's right, free entrance).  Hogman-eh! is from 5 p.m. inside at the Aberdeen Pavilion, Lansdowne Park.

The first part of the event is for kids. If like me you fade long before midnight arrive in time for the countdown to New Year in Scotland – balloons and Auld Lang Syne – 7 p.m. Then stay awhile for the  music, Scottish dancing demonstrations and food! Further info at https://ottscot.ca/.

BIFHSGO will again be there to answer your questions ... all welcome.
